Using a full Windows keyboard, Zoom was Ctr + + or - keys at the end of the keyboard. This option is not available in for all three programmes. Ctr + = or - work but are nowhere as convenient as using the keys on the number pad on the right.

Hope this makes sense.

They changed +/- assignments so that Numpad +/- keys can be set independently. It's in the latest bugfix list:


I personally never used Numpad unless I'm entering numbers, writing code or doing math. I've always treated them as different keypads. Maybe just an old habit.

It works for me regardless of Num Lock is enabled/disabled. 

See my video, as you can see when switching off numlock, the assigned keys don't match and the zooming doesn't work.
I didn't  change shortcuts in affinity or keymapping(software) or the sorts.
This a basic keyboard that came with a previous pc.

I think this endeavor to free up more shortkeys went a bit overboard to make this distinction between numpad keys and normal number keys.
On the other hand most basic windows keyboards come with F(unction)keys which would be better utilized in this respect to have Shift or Alt or Ctrl (or combo)and an Fkey as shortkey.
